reverts to my edits on Follicular unit transplantation

Hello, I don't understand why you reverted my additions to follicular unit transplantation. The message I received was that my edits were not constructive. Being a 3 time hair transplant patient and doing extensive studying on the topic, I would never add content that wasn't constructive. The content I added is 100% relevant to the topic and can't see how you would think it is not. Please advise. Thanks. Falceros7 (talk) 22:08, 25 March 2008

Illinois Fighting Illini football year-by-year record

Hi, I don't understand why you've reverted my additions to this page. I was only trying to complete what was a clearly incomplete list using clearly cited statistics. If the information is "unconstructive," then perhaps the entire page should be removed. Please let me know what your problem is with my changes, and I hope we can work this out. Thanks.

Revert on Cherie Blair

Sorry about that ... I was trying to undo some vandalism, and it reverted to a version that was itself work of a vandal. I think the current version now works. Eddieuny (talk) 22:05, 21 March 2008 (UTC)


reverts to my edits on Westboro baptist church

I found my information concerning the membership of the church through a webcasted interview with Shirley Phelps Roper on Fox News Network URL http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,217975,00.html asking her if it was true the church is made up primarily of her own family and she admitted to such a claim. I was editing truth, not defaming. User799 03:15, 21 March 2008 (UTC)

Hello Will,

I strongly object to you reverting my edits to this page. I had not signed in when I made my edits, however. My edits were to add to the article or to reorganize the text. So please please , do check your facts before issuing warnings etc.

Thanks.

Hi ... please see the recent edit summaries for the Cannibal Corpse article. I don't appreciate being told "fuck you" and being called an "ass" for reverting the nonsense of 142.163.159.219 (who I suspect is really Jumanji656, since the edits of this IP defend/guard Jumanji's irrational edits, the same edits you told him to stop making).

Please change your signature

Your signature of "Will" is confusing because your username is Sceptre. Also, there is already a user named Will and people leave messages intended for you on the talkpage of Will. If you can convince a bureaucrat to move User:Will then you can take over that name. Until then, please change your signature to include your username.

I know that sometimes, people can't keep it in anymore and need to vent. However, we have wikibreaks for that, and if you ever get stressed out remember that the people who matter all think you're awesome. The scum of the earth, meanwhile, can say anything they like; I don't care, and neither do most people. My point is, responding to them so aggressively is just going to keep them coming back because that's all they're here for; to try to piss you off. And since barnstars are overused, I'll instead write that I admire your devotion to the project; it's a model for all of us. Cheers, Master of Puppets Call me MoP! :) 21:01, 22 March 2008 (UTC)

Pompeii

Well if we were fitting to the other articals we'd use my version, but seeing as we don't have that much information giving each little bit its own heading could seem a bit OTT, I'll leave you to make the call. For your brand new artical on the Agatha Christie episode I would recomend we break up the text with another heading or a couple of sub-headings, it will help make it more palitable to read once we've added a plot, continuety, etc.--Wiggs (talk) 16:36, 22 March 2008 (UTC)

I see what you mean, but I do feel that once we have a plot and all the other things that come with it someone might decide to put what is written to one side instead of incorparating it in, since it will take up the begining of the artical, because aditional bits that make an artical impressive usually go after the plot, like Doomsday (Doctor Who). If we find a suible title to give the text about Gareth writing the episode I think it would last forever, rather then being replaced with the plot or reduced.--Wiggs (talk) 16:51, 22 March 2008 (UTC)

Why vandalism?

I provided an update with a newer source to the sales figure of an album. Why is this unconstructive? And how would an edit summary help when it merely contains 'Update'? Threatening to block me for that seems excessive and totally discourages participation. Hekerui (talk) 15:23, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

Not a reliable source at all? These are the Billboard sales figures, this level of detail can hardly be emulated, and it is constructive as it provides information about the success of an album, which is what Billboard generally does - and this institution is not discarded as unconstructive. However, if you want me to stop helping out here I will. I also gave tracklistings to album stubs and corrected mistakes in quite a few articles but I better don't do stuff like that anymore when caring for music here results in being banned.Hekerui (talk) 15:34, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

AN/I

I have removed a comment of yours per WP:BLP. Your choice of the word "incarcerated" here was inaccurate, and I hope you'll agree that this kind of wording tends to reinforce rather than de-escalate attention-seeking behaviour. Best, Kla’quot (talk | contribs) 19:35, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

It's (supposed to be) a harmless analogy. Sceptre (talk) 19:42, 23 March 2008 (UTC)
I understand it's an analogy, but consider the audience. The press may be watching; we don't know if they are but we never know until after the fact so it is always a good idea to assume that they are. The press does not understand Wikipedia's internal workings well - as we've seen, they can barely get their heads around the distinction between articles and userspace. Poorly-considered analogies make it easy for them to overlook the fact that we do not block people in order to punish them. Kla’quot (talk | contribs) 20:10, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

Vandalism

Hi you recently said i vandalised a user's page. I am unaware of how i vandalised it when he has vandalised my page and a page ive been working on. It is the St. Josephs High School (saskatoon) page and ive been told before that he and his friends would be banned for continuing to vandalise it and its zulu sections. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Farthing69 (talkcontribs) 04:15, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

help with Albanians (again)

Hi, I could use some advice from one more experienced than I. Back in December, user:Србија до Токија created Albanians in Serbia by copy-pasting the contents of Albanians in Kosovo and Albanians in Central Serbia, which were then redirected to this article. This was one of his earliest edits, and occurred not long before he got hit with the banhammer (as you might imagine from his username) for his constant nationalist insults of other editors. Twice I tried to bring Albanians in Serbia to AFD, (most recently here), and it was rejected both times. My preferred solution would be to restore Albanians in Kosovo and rename Albanians in Central Serbia to Albanians in Serbia, especially given the current political situation there. My problem now is not so much that I "lost" the deletion debate. It's more that the other two articles still exist, as there is no consensus for their deletion. Albanians in Kosovo is still being actively edited. So with the information available in two separate articles, doesn't WP:FORK come into play at some point? I discussed this with the closing admin, but he wasn't much help. Any suggestions? // Chris (complaints)(contribs) 05:16, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

Sorry for the slow response time, I've been traveling a lot this month. I'm not sure what you mean by it's "been done already". As I see it, there are still two separate articles with duplicated content. If that's not a problem, I'll be happy to drop the issue.
On an unrelated note, I'm not sure if you noticed, but our friend user:Adrianzax is back under the new username user:Rezistenta (with a properly-done name change, so no sockpuppetry). He's involved in a dispute on Roma people, tagging along on an effort to get the article renamed to Gypsies. His efforts extended to attempts to change the wording of Wikipedia:Naming conventions (identity). You might take a look if you have a chance. Thanks! // Chris (complaints)(contribs) 02:54, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

Hal Turner

Your edits seem arbitrary. The footnoted article is entitled "Sean Hannity's Friend" (approx), not Bob Grant's. The article details Turner's relationship with both Grant and Hannity. As such, I find both your edits and your warning misplaced and unwarranted. Jimintheatl (talk) 15:12, 24 March 2008 (UTC) Jimintheatl

Days of the year guideline

As a frequent contributor (or vandal patroller) to the days of the year articles (WP:DAYS), your comments on the current state of the proposed guideline for that project would be greatly appreciated. Discussion is taking place here. -- Mufka (u) (t) (c) 19:00, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

RE: Jimintheatl

I've sourced Hal Turner. While the user may have a POV, if he can source it it is acceptable, as long as it follows guidelines of course. His edits don't seem too bad to me; it has been reported by multiple sources that Hannity is tied to Turner, so I don't see why that information can't be incorporated.

editing the XENON dark matter experiment page; from Lbaudis

Hi,

I'm not sure why you called my editing of the XENON ark matter experiment page vandalism? Could you please explain. I have updated the information (which was quite old, and of course is not yet complete, thus I plan further additions). I am one of the PIs of this experiment and I believe I should have the right to edit the page.

Thank you,
